Alicia's shower was on the 21st of May and it was absolutely beautiful! My family hosted a "tea" that included three courses: appetizers, scones, and desserts. Everything was homemade and simply wonderful! To make it extra special we used china, no paper products. Decorations included violas in teacups on the tables, and a pitcher of fresh lilacs on the food table. Alicia opened gifts between courses to spread out the time involved in opening them. She received many beautiful, useful gifts.
The picture below shows a teapot, shoes and pansy favors that I made for the tables. I came home with one of the violas, too.
